tax rate on everybody who ends over $25,000 which was a helluva lot of money than. here is the rate the president proposed in his message to congress, 100%. i didn't make this up. 100%. glad you are enjoying this. if we can get more americans to enjoy this, then there going to change. this is maximum income. that is what economists mean, it meant every dollar over $25,000 you earn that you didn't earn. you would have to pay it in taxes. i did the numbers. $25,000 then, $350,000 now. every dollar over 350 today, good bye. the republicans as you might imagine, then and now, went ballistic with such a suggestion.
